La Bamba

Ritchie Valens

I have a screwed up version of this under "traditional mexican folk songs" (I think). Could you remove that entirely (it was mine) and/or replace it with this? This is corrected.
LA BAMBA ~~~~~~~~
Traditional Mexican folk song, as done by Richie Valens
My English teacher taught me how to play this. Here's my transcription. One guitar plays the tab, the other plays the chords:
C F G C F G |-------------------------------------------------------------| |-------------1---------------------------1-------------------| |-------0---2-----------------------0---2---------------------| |-----2---3-----------0-3-3-2-0---2---3-----------0-3-3-2-0---| |---3---------------2-----------3---------------2-------------| |---------------3-3-------------------------3-3---------------|
Para bailar La Bamba Para bailar La Bamba se necessita una poca de gracia Una poca de gracia y otra cosita y arriba y arriba Ay arriba y arriba por ti sere por ti sere por ti sere Yo no soy marinero soy capitan soy capitan soy capitan
Bamba la Bamba Bamba la Bamba Bamba la Bamba Bamba la Bamba Ba------------
I got the lyrics from what was already in OLGA!

According to the sheet music, these are the lyrics for the song:

Walalalala bamba, walalalala bamba, es necesito, a poca la gracia
A poca la gracia pa me, pa tia
Arriba, arriba.

Arriba, arriba, por que sere, por que sere, por que sere

Yo no soy mananero, Yo no soy mananero, soy capitan, soy capitan, soy capitan

Unfortunately, I'm doing this on a laptop and without a 10 key, I can't enter the ANSI character set figures for accents and eclensions for the proper spelling of things like que (which has an accent over the 'e') and that sort of thing. If you'd like the English translation, I can provide it, but quite a bit of the Spanish lyrics are idiomatic, meaning there is only a loose English translation.
